A growing number of dads are staying home these days. According to goverment statistics, there are now 200,000 men staying at home full-time to look after their kids or home. They can be just as effective.

A stay at home parent makes choices that can impact the environment. They cook meal with less waste. They produce less pollution by not commuting to work. Frugal choices such as hanging the laundry on the line can cut carbon emissions. A parent can grow a vegetable garden in order to truly eat locally. Stay at home parents can make less toxic choices, such as making their own household cleaners. They often repair broken items, instead of buying new ones. Families can borrow books from the library, instead of buying new ones. The examples they can pass on to their children can be priceless.
